A project to develop best practices for evaluating soil and material stabilization products has been launched by the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC).
Stabilization of poor soils is a common practice used by many Canadian agencies during road construction. There are numerous stabilization products available including ones that are new to the market, typically divided into three product categories: physical, chemical, and biological. Canadian agencies often struggle to obtain information about the products, installation procedures, and long-term performance.
The project steering committee is currently being formed; work will begin soon.
Funding partners for this project include Alberta Transportation; Manitoba Infrastructure; New Brunswick Transportation and Infrastructure; Ministry of Transportation, Ontario; Saskatchewan Highways and Infrastructure; Yukon Highways and Public Works, Cement Association of Canada, Ville de Montréal and the City of Saskatoon.
